Shego's DilemmaShego's Dilemma by *MetroXLR99
a Saucer-like hovercraft jetted stealthly over the town of Middleton.
at the controls was an olive skinned woman,
with dark green eyes, ridiculously long, wavy black hair,
and, wearing a distictive Green-and-Black "catsuit".
Shego was grinding her teeth, he musles tensing.
she was on a Personal mission..one she doubt would end happily for her.
the whole trip, she was lost in thought at recent events..
"a clone..(growls angrily)
How is it that Everywhere I turn, I must deal with some Wackjob CLONING ME!!?"
I took a moment to rub my temples, to relieve some stress..
then exhaled loudly.
("I never had to worry about Drakken.
Doctor D is about as good at cloning, as he is making Robots: AWFUL!!
and, NO VILLAIN is dumb enough to even 'TRY' and clone me.
so, WHO IN THE HELL DID IT!!?, What SUICIDAL MORON got my DNA, and FR***** CLONED ME!!?)
I groaned as my mind wandered back to that day I met.. "Myself"

[Ponyville, The Next Day]
Morning's light shined into the Library Home of Twilight Sparkle..
as the warm beams filled the main room, Twilight slowly opened her violet eyes.
she yawned, rubbing her eyes as her drowsiness began to fade.
Twilight looked, and saw that all five of her friends were sound asleep,
and, laying in a circle around her on the floor.
Twilight then looked down..and, saw who else was sleeping.
the lime green foal made soft breathing sounds as he slept.
Twilight smiled warmly at her son whom was only born last night.
she leaned her head down, and nuzzled his small ginger mane.
the baby colt made a soft squealing noise as he stretched out his tiny, stubby legs.
"alex.." whispered Twilight, softly
"wake up, baby..it's Morning."
Alex Jr's slowly opened his sky blue eyes.
he the yawned, making a high pitched noise as he did.
Twilight then brushed at his mane with her muzzle.
"time to get up..SON.
begin the new day, Begin your new life."
Twilight's eyes were moist.

Months had passed since Alex Cosmos death..
and, much had transpired in Equestria since then.
While most ponies had managed to resume their daily lives
SOME found it harder to regain their Happiness and Laughter.
as expected..Twilight was taking the longest to heal.
the once Punctual and Well Organized mare was slacking off,
spending more time at her library home than out in Ponyville amongst her fellow ponies.
Her friends tries to give her time to herself (Celestia knew THEY needed the same thing)
but, eventually..even they grew concerned, and had to force her back into the real world.
It was a steady process..but, Twilight eventually resumed normal life.
she started writing to Princess Celestia again,
and, kept in touch with her parents and brother more.
still..It was clear that she would never be the same, again.
As for her friends,
while they took their grief better than Twilight..even THEY suffered lasting effects of Alex's death.
Much like when her parents died when she was a you

[Canterlot Castle, The Next Morning]
The six all sat lined up in a large room.
they all felt terrible..having witnessed the death of their good friend.
but, none was more rattled than Twilight Sparkle herself.
she sat in the center of the line..her body trembling.
her fur and mane was sticking out, and her dreary looking eyes just kept staring down.
Applejack took notice of her.
Just then, a door opened.
and, in walked the radiant Princess Celestia (with her sister Luna close behind)
Celestia stood before the six (glancing at her puple, Twilight)
the alicorn exhaled sharply, then cleared her throat to speak.
"good morning, my ponies.." began Celestia, her tone calm
"Let me begin by saying again how deeply sorry and regretful I am for your loss.
Alexander Cosmos..was a GOOD stallion, his Nobility and Kindness was unmatched."
fresh tears formed in Twilight's eyes.
she didn't try to hide, nor wipe them away..she just let them fall.
Celestia also took noteice of her sister,
"It is said 'that which does not kill you makes you stronger'
but, that which makes you stronger can often kill you..
Addiction is a weakness..One that I must overcome.
Venom has become my addiction..my weakness."
